Fun ’n Friendsy

by Vicki H. Budge


Twings are made by pasting leaves onto paper squares to form birds, animals, or people. To make them you will need different-shaped leaves, marking pens, white or colored paper, and paste.

Smooth the leaves until they are flat and fasten them with paste onto the paper. Use the marking pens to complete the figures you wish to make (see illustrations below).

What kind of twings can you create?
